Porn is to blame, at least in part, for the increase in school shootings around the U.S., according to a Tennessee congresswoman.

Diane Black, a Republican lawmaker who is running for governor, said during a recent meeting with pastors in Clarksville that porn is a “big part of the root cause,” according to HuffPost.




“It’s available on the shelf when you walk in the grocery store,” she said. “Yeah, you have to reach up to get it, but there’s pornography there. All of this is available without parental guidance.”

Black did not elaborate on her assertion during the exchange with religious leaders, which was obtained by HuffPost.

She did say that the “deterioration of the family,” violent movies and mental illness were major factors in why school shootings take place.

“I mean today, I still can’t watch violent movies where people are being blown up because I am not desensitized enough,” she said.

At least 38 people have been killed in school shootings around the country so far this year. Other countries have not been plagued by school shootings, even though pornography does exist all over the world.

“I think the context is pretty clear,” Black campaign spokesman Chris Hartline told CNN. “Diane believes the breakdown of families and communities plays a significant role in instances of school violence.”

The 67-year-old Black, who boasts of an A+ rating with the National Rifle Association, says on her campaign website that gun control is clearly not the answer.

“In response to mass shootings, liberals have called for banning and confiscating all guns,” she writes. “We must recognize mental health issues are the cause of mass gun violence, not the guns themselves.”

Under the headline “Protect the 2nd Amendment,” she adds, “I will continue to fight to preserve our fundamental right to keep and bear arms.”
